I use to like to blend in. It was safer, but the older I get the bolder I get. I'd be happy to stand out now. I don't care what anybody thinks anymore. Imagine what I'll be like in my eighties, I could be uttrely outgrageous by then and everyone will smile and let the crazy old lady be. Ha! Can't wait.
I tend to stand out from the crowd. Even when I'm trying to blend in.... there are times when it would be much better to fit in and seem like everyone else but I have learnt over the years that I am a rogue specimen and just different. So now I don't try to blend in and just get on with being me. It makes life uncomfortable sometimes but I just have to put up with it!
